Cover Page

Cite item


Despite the considerable number of studies on the historical process of formation of the Brazilian nation, it seems to be important to examine this problem from the socio-cultural point of view. We should refer to the beginning of the historical process, when the "Brazilian" appears not only as a subjective phenomenon of self-identification, but, above all, as a phenomenon of social and cultural reality. We will try to make a brief historical overview of the most significant ideas pertaining to the subject, because the matter of Brazilian identity appears to be basic for a researcher of Brazil's history, sociology and culture.
